After posting yesterday’s pictures, we were asked where did all of the snow go? The answer is contained in this picture taken from the Town of Waynesville Park.
The town is at an elevation of 2,750 feet (840 meters) and is where we took our first walk on Sunday. And the city of Asheville is 2,134 feet (650 meters) which is where we were all hanging out on the drop line:
Our house, however, sits at an elevation of 4500 feet (1372 meters), so we are more like those snow covered mountains you see rising behind the park in the first picture. Our road may be plowed, but there is still plenty of snow. Oh, and we have more snow forecasted for this week.
P.S. – And for those who asked, the Blue Ridge Parkway is still closed in our part of the world even though it is open in the Asheville area. If you are coming to our area, you can always call (828) 298 0398 for closure information. Just doing our bit to promote tourism!
